Hello! I am gonna share my MK9 Ideas And Predictions! Mario Kart 9 Is most likely to be on Nintendo NX. But, anyways here are my ideas.


Shell Cup:
(3DS) Daisy Hills
(DS) Shroom Ridge
(GBA) Lakeside Park
(SNES) Mario Circuit 4

Banana Cup:
(SNES) Ghost Valley 3
(3DS) Shy Guy Bazaar
(Wii U) Sweet Sweet Canyon
(Wii) Toad's Factory

Leaf Cup:
(Wii U) Shy Guy Falls
(GCN) Mushroom City
(N64) Wario Stadium
(GBA) Bowser Castle 4

Lightning Cup:
(3DS) Wario Shipyard
(Wii U) Electrodrome
(GCN) Bowser Castle
(GBA) Rainbow Road

SNES Tracks: 2
N64 Tracks: 1
GBA Tracks: 3
GCN Tracks: 2
DS Tracks: 1
Wii Tracks: 1
3DS Tracks: 3
Wii U Tracks: 3


Returning Items:
Green Shell
Tri-Green Shell
Red Shell
Tri-Red Shell
Golden Mushroom
Blooper (BUT, needs a bigger splat that can at least affect REAL HUMAN vision)
Spiny Shell
Lightning Bolt
Bullet Bill/Chain Chomp
Piranha Plant
Super Horn
Boo Item
Giant Banana
Mega Mushroom
Fake Item Box
Bowser Shell

[Items That Shouldn't Return And My Reasons:]

Coin Item: It doesn't really do anything.. but just increase acceleration and it is useless.

POW Block: Again, it is useless.

Thunder Cloud: If you use it, and there is no one around.. you're doomed. It isn't really an item. Items are suppose to help you. Not just turn you tiny like this one.

Leaf: It is useless.

[New Items:]

Hammer: When used, it pops out in front of you. Once you use it again, it will crash down and speed you up. Anyone who gets caught will be mashed and flat.

Ice Flower: Shoots ice fireballs. Once someone is hit by it, they will have to press a button 4 times to get out.

Frenzy 9: Gives 9 Items- Green Shell,Red Shell,Spiny Shell,Mushroom,Star,Bob-Omb,Banana,Blooper,and Super Horn.

Bouncy Ball: Can be thrown forward or backward. Will bounce off walls and when it hits someone, they get mushed or they can rolled over.

Cursed Skull: Goes after all the players ahead of you and can prevent player's drifting. This also slows down players. Affect disappears after 6 seconds.

Wand: Is very powerful. Shoots a spell up into the sky and one of the following things can happen:

-A ton of bananas will fall down (for 6 seconds and then they will fade)

-Fireballs will shoot at all players

-A ton of shells will appear out of nowhere

[PART 3: Characters]

IMPORTANT: Any characters with % will not appear at the start of the game and will need to be unlocked.


Donkey Kong
Diddy Kong %
Birdo %
Bowser Jr %
Waluigi %
Rosalina %
Shy Guy
Dry Bowser %
Metal Mario %
Baby Mario %
Baby Luigi %
Koopalings %

Characters That Shouldn't Return:

Honey Queen
Pink Gold Peach
Petey Piranha
Baby Rosalina
Baby Daisy
Baby Peach

New Characters:
Hammer Bro
Professor E Gadd

I love your tracks so far. Big fan of it :D
Thanks Rain, also I decided that since it's Mario Kart 9, and there are/might be 8 games before it, I was thinking of having 2 retro tracks per game. Since there are a total of 16 retro tracks ever since Mario Kart DS, I decided to keep the games' retro tracks balanced with the same number of retro tracks per game.
Here's what id like to see: Mario Kart Complete, as in ALL the tracks remastered. Then id group them like all Rainbow Roads in one or two Grand Prix's, etc. Also, I loved Double Dash so of course the characters should ride together again.


No retro tracks. Lets go with a ton of new stuff. I for one am probably not buying MK8 again. It was awesome for wii u, i really just don't think I'm spending the money on it again.
And can we get a goomba please?
